Top Rookie QB's

Top Rookie QB's

1. Alex Smith, SF: He's the only quarterback with a chance to start in Week 1. It's likely. The 49ers have done a nice job building their offensive line, but Smith lacks the weapons to make a major fantasy impact as a rookie. He's an option as a QB3 only in deeper leagues.


2. Jason Campbell, WSH: Ignore the spin job in Washington: Campbell is their quarterback of the near future. No team, even one as scrambled as the Redskins, invests two first-round picks in a player unless he's going to lead the franchise. Patrick Ramsey will have to win right away to keep his job all season. Considering Joe Gibbs's history with quarterbacks, Campbell is a nice dynasty league pick.

3. Charlie Frye, CLE: It's hard not to compare this kid to Bernie Kosar, his childhood hero. Frye has exceptional leadership skills. Trent Dilfer will have to tank to get Frye on the field as a rookie, but that's certainly possible.


4. Aaron Rodgers, GB: Brett Favre could play two more seasons, so Rodgers may not see the field for a while. We question Rodgers's long-term upside, but Green Bay was a perfect landing spot for his short-game skills.

5. Adrian McPherson, NO: The former AFL star will be the No. 3 quarterback as a rookie, but could be the quarterback of the future in the Crescent City. His physical skills are superior to Aaron Brooks, which is saying a lot.

6.Andrew Walter, OAK: The Arizona State product with a big arm looks like the heir apparent for Kerry Collins in Oakland. He should take a few years.

7. Kyle Orton, CHI: Not a bad pro prospect because of his big arm, Orton was drafted by a team where quarterbacks go to die.

8. David Greene, SEA: A "game-manager" type, Greene will be behind Matt Hasselbeck and Seneca Wallace as a rookie. Mike Holmgren has groomed lesser QBs like Hasselbeck into stars.

9. Stefan Lefors, CAR: Like McPherson, Walter, and Frye, Lefors is a lot like the quarterback who will teach him. It reminds us of dog owners who buy canines who look like themselves.

DROOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's Hoping he will actually use his physical skills instead of his mouth like AB.

Oh and this. Coaching, Smoaching!

If AB wanted to run and use his "Superior Athleticism" He would!

In that Cat's mind, It is all about AB! Not our Saints.

I seem to remember a team a few years ago that invested two first round picks into one player, and that didn't turn out too well.

Would that be the potentially cancerous lard butt defensive tackle that Hasbeen wasted 2 first round picks on thinking he was the second coming of Warren Sapp ????
